Supporter of local music | Nearly two decades of media experience
Photographer | Videographer | TV Production
Music and media have been passions of mine since I was a kid. I’ve been lucky enough to find a way to combine those passions as an adult.
My love of music began with piano lessons when I was five to being in school bands in elementary and high school. I also would record music off the radio with a Sony boombox I had and would record myself pretending to be a radio DJ.
This ultimately led to me working in the radio and television industries since 2003 and running a local music website since 2013.
I have been fortunate enough to gain experience as a director, technical director, audio operator and ‘multi-skilled journalist’ in TV news at CTV Vancouver Island for more than 16 years. As a music photographer, I have been able to cover major music festivals such as Austin City Limits, BottleRock Napa Valley, Skookum Festival and Rifflandia among hundreds of other concerts.
Whether you have a photo or video project or need a media consultant, I have a jack-of-all-trades skill set that can bring your project to life.
VictoriaMusicScene.com (2013 – Present)
I am the owner/administrator and photographer of local music website VictoriaMusicScene.com. The purpose of the website is to promote music by musicians with ties to Victoria, BC Canada, promote concerts happening in the city and share local music news.
CTV Vancouver Island (2003 – Present)
Began my career in television working in the then The New VI’s microwave live truck. I eventually moved into the studio and have worked as an audio operator, production assistant, graphics person, technical director, director, ENG camera person, multi-skilled journalist and web producer.
98.5 The Ocean (2003 – 2004)
In late 2003 I was hired as a promotions assistant at 98.5 The Ocean FM in Victoria where I set up and operated remote broadcasts, redesigned the radio station’s email newsletter and designed bannerstands and travel coffee mugs.
Services and prices
Let's create something together.
I specialize in live music coverage, but am open to other projects. I have photographed major music festivals to small shows at coffee shops.
Do you need a camera slider to add some motion to a camera shot? How about some RGB lighting to make a music video pop? Maybe an multi-track digital audio recorder for a film shoot? I have a growing selection of equipment that I’m happy to rent out.
